Looking for new board, need some suggestions
Hi everyone, i'm new here and been browsing around. I am looking for a new board. I've been riding my current one for a while its a Burton Clash 160 and think its time for something totally different because this board seem a bit too big for me and is way too stiff. Great for runs down mountain but not so much for park.
I'm from Florida so I only get up north (Mainly New England Area) a few times each year and hope to be going out west next year. But because of my location I dont have a chance to demo many different boards. I tried one of my cousins last time I was up north and really liked it, it was a little shorter (157) with medium flex (Burton something I forget) but would like something with more flex than that even.
Not looking to spend a ton on it cause wont get to use it but a few times each year, but I want somethin I can have fun with when I get out.
I have been looking at:
Rome Artifact Rocker
So not really sure which to go with. Also i'm a size 12 boot, do I really need a wide board? I have never used one before and it never seemed to be a problem. Would I benefit any from getting a wide board over a normal one?
I was thinking board size in the 154-157 Range.
Boot size: 12
Riding style: intermediate rider, looking to progress more in the park and
Will mainly be riding in the North East with the occasional trip elsewhere.
Edit: height: 5'10"
So thanks for any help all it's much appreciated because i'm here in 85 degree weather lol
